No Dragon*Con for me... - Nothing to See Here

11:13 pm - No Dragon*Con for me...

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I was already pretty much at the point of having decided that I really couldn't afford to spend the time or money travelling to Atlanta for Dragon*Con over Labor Day weekend. I really would love to go, but it's just not practical. :( It's a real pity because I would presumably have got to hang out with irtluhc and maeglin73, in addition to hanging out with fun Browncoats, seeing Firefly/Serenity cast members, going to the live version of The Signal podcast, going to parties, and so on. D*C was a tonne of fun last year, and I think it would be fantastic this year too.

The fact that flying is going to be such a huge pain in the posterior has made it a whole lot easier for me not to keep rethinking my decision.

There's always the hope for better chances next year... both for your being able to come out here and airports not being as paranoid. I'll likely find out about the latter if I manage to get to Canada next summer.

Well, as I mentioned to you before, I'll be finding out a lot sooner than that. :/

It sucks, but I really can't do it at the moment. Time I can ill afford to spend, and a lot of money (around a grand) that I definitely can't justify right now. Weddings are not cheap, nor are they a breeze to organise.
